"Their words of encouragement really helped me have my water birth"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Maternity

(as the patient),

Such a fantastic team at East Surrey, midwives Kate and Polly, very supportive all the way through the birth, their words of encouragement really helped me and because of them I was able to have my water birth. A true asset to the NHS. Already can't wait for the next time.

Dear mummabear11032015

Thank you for you kind words about your recent water birth at East Surrey Hospital and in particular the encouragement you received from my two colleagues. I will try and ensure that your comments are shared with them.

I was also impressed to read that you already can't wait for the next time!

Kind regards
